Welcome back, I hope you all had a brilliant half term. Here is the Summer term curriculum leaflet to let you know what Heron Class will be learning about this term.

Easter Parade! Well done to you all for working so hard to create such amazing easter bonnets, flags and gardens, they all looked brilliant. Have a really wonderful Easter break.

We've been busy learning how to multiply in Maths.

We went on a fantastic trip to Rich's Cider Farm to learn how apple juice is made. The children and the adults all had a brilliant afternoon and how scrummy that apple juice was! Thank you Mr Rich.

We've been busy learning all about Germs in Science this week! The children completed an investigation to find out what the best way is to get rid of germs. We put glitter on our hands as the germs and then touched objects around the room, notiing how easy it is to spread germs. We then used a paper towel to get rid of them followed by cold water and then hot water and soap. The children found out that hot water and soap is the most effective way to get rid of germs. Well done Herons, brilliant Science work today.

In the Outdoor Classroom this week the children were happily playing with all the beautiful autumn leaves and creating leaf hedgehogs.

We've been busy learning how to add and subtract two 2-digit numbers in Maths. We've been using dienes to help us initially, then we learnt how to use the expanded column method. Miss La Croix is very proud of us!

We had a brilliant afternoon playing some Victorian games and playing with some real Victorian toys. A huge thank you to Ethan for allowing us to use these.

In our Science lesson we explored different food and sorted them into categories.

In Maths we have been learning all about the value of numbers. We used cubes, objects, digit cards and dots to represent these numbers.

In Art the children have been learning how to sketch. We created a rainbow with the different shades of grey we could make depending on how hard or light we pressed the pencil to the paper.

We have been thinking about how animals grow and change over time. We matched pictures and names of baby animals and adult animals before thinking about exactly how they changed over time.

In Maths the children have been learning how to partition numbers into tens and ones. WE have been using dienes and a ten frame to help us to do this.

In the Outdoor Classroom the children were challenged to create a home for one of our toys. He needed a very comfy bed and a roof over his head. Here are some of our ideas!

I have been very excited to welcome my new Herons and have enjoyed getting to know the children over the past few weeks. We have been starting off by looking at the fabulous story Traction Man by Mini Grey in Literacy as well as talking about class rules and how we can be independent learners.

 

Our topic this term is 'Toys'. The Curriculum leaflet is attached below for more information.   If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to come in and see me. 

 

Thank you to everyone who is helping their child to learn how to do up their top button, tie their tie and shoe laces! It has been great to see some children helping others to do this too! These things really help us when changing for PE and the Outdoor Classroom in particular. This term we will be having PE on Wednesdays and the Outdoor Classroom on Thursdays so please ensure your child has their PE and Outdoor Classroom kit in school on these days.

 

Thank you.

General Information


Spellings are handed out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. The spellings are based on the work we are doing in class in Letters and Sounds and on high frequency words. If you lose your spellings, there will be spare copies on the Parent's Notice Board in the cloakroom for you to take.

 

Children, please bring in your reading book every day. Try and read to an adult every day at home for 10 to 15 minutes. 


I would be very grateful to any helpers who would like to come in on a regular basis to hear readers and as this has a huge impact on our young readers. Later in the term, it would also be brilliant if anyone would like to help the children learn their times tables with our '55 Club'. If you would like to volunteer to do this, please pop in and speak to me or Mrs Hague at the office.

 

Homework is given out on Thursdays and I ask for it to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Spare copies will also be available on the Parent's Board. Parents - if you're able to spend 20-30 minutes with the children on their homework, that would be fantastic.

 

Children, try and remember to bring in a water bottle and please remember to name the water bottle. Drinking water helps your brain to function better!
